Whether you require remedial work on an earthquake-damaged building or have purchased an ‘as is where is’ home, the expert team specialises in house re-levelling, foundation and pile repair. “We also carry out remedial work on non-compliant EQC repairs,” says Precision Solutions Contracts Manager, Charles Porter. “We take a lot of care to provide the home owner with solid engineering and builders quotes via their quantity surveyors to give our clients a full repair scope, and we’ve helped many get a satisfactory outcome from their insurers.”

The friendly and professional team has extensive industry experience and a strong understanding of the Christchurch and wider Canterbury rebuild landscapes. The company developed its own unique solution as a result of the Canterbury earthquakes, to raise, re-level and repair your home to millimetre accuracy.
Engineering and consents are also taken care of, to ensure your property meets the requirements for continued insurance and reinsurance. “Having a medium sized crew of very capable guys has allowed us to keep our standards extremely high. We treat your home as if it were our own, going above and beyond throughout the process.”

Those putting their home on the market or who have concerns about their home’s foundation could benefit from a free assessment. Some of the signs to look out for in your own home include cracking in external foundation walls and a ‘hogging’ or sagging floor. “Many people don’t realise their home has issues until they prepare to sell and get a builder’s report – so it pays to get it professionally checked.”
An assessment by the Precision Solutions team consists of a visual site inspection and floor level survey, providing an obligation-free estimate to re-level and repair the foundation and floors.

A precise relevelling project: How Precision Solutions got Jim and Linda back in their home with minimal fuss

When Linda Horan and Jim Mitchell moved to their new home in Woolston in 2004, they intended to stay there for life. It was shiny and new, and closer to work and family.

Like so many however, they experienced significant disruption in the earthquakes and thus began a long process to find resolution. They considered several options but wanted to stay in Woolston. The house had sunk 100mm and suffered serious cracks in the foundation slab. They had plans drawn up for a rebuild.
Then they contacted Precision Solutions, a foundation and floor relevelling specialist which had done some work for Linda’s niece, who had been thoroughly impressed. Precision Solutions put together a plan to repair Jim and Linda’s house, simpler, less expensive and quicker than the proposed rebuild. The plan was to lift the house back to where it should be. Simple.
“Fundamentally,” says Precision Solutions Contract Manager, Charles Porter, “It’s quite a simple process. Physically however, it’s a bit more complicated.”
The whole lifting and relevelling process took three weeks. Most of the time was spent in preparation, clearing the house, digging underpinning holes and pouring lifting pads. The house was then lifted and levelled, millimetres at a time.
After some other renovations, Jim and Linda were back in their home after only 12 weeks. “We’re so happy with it,” Linda says. “Precision’s people were very thorough. They worked every day. They were never late and, what they said they’d do, they did. Sometimes they stayed late to finish what they were doing. We were very impressed with their attitude, and their price was $18,000 cheaper than another reputable competitor.”
